I have thoughts of what life would look like if it was based on compassion and fair business. Almost every day of the week those thoughts would pass through me like vapors passing through silk, flowing like a winding river. I meditate every day for a least an hour, sitting with myself in clearing and breath rituals and I still had those thoughts. Because of the historical and political unfoldings of our modern world, we are in the midst of a huge transformation and I feel it is within a frame of time where we better get it right.
Every aspect of human life and society is up for debate. It is in a place ready for a change in our society art of living. Technically as a society, we are the most advanced that any society has ever been. We have so much awareness and access, it gives us a wider, firm stronger usage of our right of choice or we are just complacent in a comfortable lifestyle with no want to change our comfort zone.
As a modern man of age, I have some wants and dreams I would like to see put in place. These dreams and wants and wishes are not just personal, but supportively societal. I want my people and my planet to thrive, rather than just survive. I want to be able to leave this planet knowing my daughter and her possible children will have a better world than I. I would want to be able to leave this planet knowing this planet has the ability and a committed contract to thrive.
Being a child of the 1960’s, I have seen the revolutions and the stories of societal change. The timing of those changes were ones of moving in the timing of decades, ten years of brewing in fashion, politics, music, art, and politics. From hippies to punks, to funk, to the me generation and now the millennials, we have either pushed ourselves forward or pushed ourselves backward.
At this moment in time and history, we as a society, are standing on the edge, getting ready to either leap into the future with the grace of supporting humankind or we are to be strapped and frozen within by our fears as we turn from flesh into ash.
It is time for a revolution. I don’t mean a physical overthrowing of the society. I am talking about coming into alignment with the caretaking of human rights, religious freedom, compassionate perspectives toward cultural rituals of living and more democratic practices unifying in clearer sense of solution as a practical means to govern our country. I am talking about supporting the sacredness of human life, honoring or valuing the story and process of life.
I do have fears of us maintaining the divisional state of being we are now living today as a society and I don’t want to see the stripping of humanity that I am witnessing as a modern elder and man.
Yes, I am waiting for the world change…waiting for the light to turn green, so I could walk more freely with a stronger sense of security in my steps. I am waiting for the world to not be the same…waiting for the world to make its change.
History has taught me, change is inevitable, a prime example is the law of nature. Nothing ever stays the same. It is always in evolution.So that is why we must stay in the flow of the movement of change. Things fall apart in order for them to have the opportunity to be put back together again to begin a new transition, transformation.
We are being forced to change.
We can no longer stay complacent.
We must take actions and be in action, for the birthing of change.
We have to move forward or fall backward.
We, as a people, as members of the human race, if we are going to have success as a people we must work in a unified manner in order to gain an ongoing sense of balance and continuity. The time has come for us to walk through the door of opportunity and take the journey of aiding the process of change unfolding. We are in an evolutionary spiral of change. Every step we take to transition into the future is monumental in the process of creating the change in manifestation.
Let’s be adults ready to play fairly like children in a playground for the first time. We can learn new methods of living and being. We could learn to live by doing fair business practices as an everyday occurrence, treating women with respect as our sisters, wives, and mothers. We would honor our children and keep them safe from gunplay and uncontrolled anger. We would honor people’s individual sexual identity and orientation. We would respect the differences of our cultures, along with our common bonds of traditions.
Respect is the key word, along with compassion and basic kindness.
Be quicker to forgive.
Go with the flow of life and learn how to surf the coming waves of life.
Be awake and aware of the story of life.
Respect the Book of Life, the chapters, the paragraphs, the lines and all of the punctuation that illustrates the story of life…and remember to honor the universal story of life and to be willing to be your part in it.
Respect the intimacy and importance of having a mutual conversation, the art of communing together in sense of honor, a true meeting of the minds. The more conversations we commit to and act upon, the more chance we can come into alignment and create a worldwide container of mindful living which allow the ability to have a chance to have a sacred conversation. Sacred conversation is the chance to be authentic and honest with nothing to hide or hoard.
I am waiting for the world become just and mindful of their words and actions. Be mindful of the footprints they are leaving on this planet and their own individual souls.
I am waiting on the world to change for the higher of us all and I am waiting again in faith like I know the seasons of nature…like waiting for the rising of the sun.
